Would you buy Home-made Horse Treats?

I have been making Horse treats for my horses for a while now, and they just go completely insane over them... they love them compared to the store bought treats!! I like making them since I know what is going into them, and know it's completely healthy for my horse... Dogs even love them!

So my question is, Would you buy home-made treats?
I love to bake, so have been thinking about making them, and selling some since I have been told numerous times that I need to make them for the public and sell them.
So I have been thinking about it..
Right now Im only making a couple kinds of treats.. so any ideas would be great for different kids. :)

Why are you targeting children? The people who will be more likely to buy horse treats, are the adults who usually own those horses, or the parents. If you look at your local tack store, or even online-there are some books available with recipes to make horse treats. Im sure if you do some searching online, you'll also find all sorts of horse treat recipes.

I would have fun with it. Make them different colors, different flavors. Most ingredients need to make them you either get through your local horse feed store and at your local grocery store. If you make lots and make them affordable, I think people would rather buy fresh, home made ones as opposed to store bought ones. I certainly would rather buy ones a local horse owner makes than the dry bags you get at most tack stores.

Good luck!

It indeed changes the context of your sentence. As suggested earlier, have you searched online for recipes?
